This is the description from a BMW website on the system.

The standard rollover safety system in the 1995 BMW 325i Convertible is comprised of two recessed aluminium bars fitted behind the rear-seat headrests and pre-tensioned by powerful springs. When the angle of the BMW changes and exceeds a certain point, the bars instantaneously move up by a maximum of 27 cm and then are held back by a dampened stopper mechanism just in front of the soft roof or hardtop. They remain securely in position for optimal safety

Can some guide me thru the reset procedure of Roll-Over Protection System on a 1995 BMW 325ic other than owners manual. And where to purchase tool to reset RPS.
Or can it be reset without tool?
